Hey! Wait a minute! The Anti-Christ looks like Jesus. Who’s directing this?

SIGNORELLI ANTICHRISTIn this most famous painting, Satan and/or the Anti-Christ is/are pointing to the martyred Dominican friar (not pictured here) laying just below them, he having gotten an axe to his head. The Anti-Christ is getting some advice from Satan. Depending where you are standing, you might not just be able to see Satan behind the Anti-Christ, and you might be tempted to think that it was Jesus you saw before you. But, no, just someone possessed by Satan. “But it looks like Jesus!” So? Get over it. That’s always our excuse, analogously, with any sin: “But it seems like it’s nice!” So? Get over it. That’s living life on the level of a mind-game with the world, the flesh and the devil, and we will lose that mind-game every time. The only thing that cuts through the mind-game thing is Jesus’ Love which is also His Truth which is also His Justice (but is still His Love!). If you’re going to have any fear, do not fear the one who can kill you. No, no. Fear Him who can throw body and soul in Gehenna, and the only one who can do that is the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, for He will come to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. Having said all of that, pray for all exorcists and those to whom they would wish to bring the Lord’s mercy. I put it that way since not all are like Padre Pio. Yikes! Hail Mary…

    How very profound…….and needed. God bless you, Father George. I am so thankful for your blog…this message, today, is quite essential. Sin is so easy to fall into, these days.

    Ah! yes…Satan! He does come as an angel of light, doesn’t he?
